Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV) recently announced that Brittany Thompson has joined the processing team as a Loan Assistant out of the Roanoke, Virginia branch. Thompson joins the team with a wealth of experience in the finance industry and enthusiasm for her new role.
Thompson was born and raised in Warsaw, Virginia located on the state’s Northern Neck. Thompson graduated from Rappahannock High School in 2010. Shortly after, she went on to attend Rappahannock Community College, working toward a degree in Business Management. She is currently attending Penn Foster to further her education in Finance.
Thompson started her career in banking at Atlantic Union Bank as a Teller during her studies at Rappahannock Community College. She served several branch and operational roles with that association. She also worked in the Loan Operations department at Essex Bank, as well as with EVB Bank.
Thompson grew up lending a hand on her Uncle’s farm in Richmond County, and looks forward to her new role and the opportunity to work closely with producers and rural community members in the FCV footprint. She shared, “My childhood consisted of helping feed the cows, cutting corn in the combine, and watching my dad maintain the farm and his lumber operation. My favorite childhood memories involve helping out in the garden and canning vegetables for the upcoming year.”
She continued, “I am very excited to be part of the FCV family and I look forward to calling Botetourt County home. The welcome I have already received is heartfelt and for that I am grateful. I am excited to bring almost 10 years of banking experience to Farm Credit and to grow my career. I can already tell I am joining a hard-working lending group driven by community and ensuring the strongest outcome for our customer-owners.”
